Pre op for hernia surgery, ECG read " possible inferior infarct , age undetermined, what should my concerns be heading into surgery friday morning?

Heart attack: This could be a sign if an old heart attack. If it was the computer reading, it may not be correct. Comparison with an old ECG is helpful.

Abnormal ECG sinus bradycardia and septal infarct age undetermined?

Depends: Sinus bradycardia can be normal in a fit individual. Septal infarct age undetermined may also be a normal variant, but also possibly indicate previous injury to the heart. You might want to consider getting further evaluation, such as a stress treadmill ECG test. Depending on various associated healthy issues, this might need to be combined with imaging (nuclear or ultrasonography). ...Read more
